Of course, when we're this early in the marking period, not very many people are checking anyway. So, to the 5 of you who are - my apologies.

Africa often gets overlooked here in the U.S. Or at least, it seemed to when I was taking social studies. Of course, maybe I've just forgotten the bulk of what I learned in 7th and 8th grade. It wasn't that long ago, was it?
At any rate, Concord's 7th grade social studies department has been trying to rectify this. Before fall break, I'll be teaching about 3 ancient African kingdoms. We worked on a map today, and we'll do a little activity tomorrow.
Wish us luck, it's a little chaotic.
